Today is the little girl’s birthday. She closes her eyes and blows
out the candles on her birthday cake and makes a wish. Suddenly
lots of strange things start happening but Mum and Dad can’t see
them. Can the little girl convince her parents that she is not
silly? And what happens when the sun goes down? Helbling Young
Readers is an exciting new series of graded readers for Primary
Schools in 5 levels. Engaging stories with beautiful full-colour
illustrations, specially written to appeal to young learners of
English, introduce high-frequency words in order to promote fluency
from an early age. Each story is carefully graded and language is
presented both as lexical groups and language functions.
Accompanying Interactive Whiteboard compatible CD-ROMs include a
complete reading of the story, chants and games and link to the
Young Readers website. All materials use an open type font which
has been devised to help children with reading difficulties.
